Default Turbo selection Help

Going to do a custom Turbo kit for my civic. Been tossing the ideal of which turbocharger to use. So many options IHI, Comp, Garrett, Precision, Turbonetics, Borgwarner. I donít want to spend a lot of money the turbocharger, however I do want to go with ball bearing. I would prefer Ceramic Ball Bearings. Would also like to do a billet compressor wheel.
A good friend just turbocharged his vehicle with one of these kPa Turbochargers. He went with the 2863 and its spools instantly and makes great hp. He has around 5000 miles on it and its been perfect. It also came with warranty and stainless gaskets. He paid around $800. Though that was a good deal for ceramic ball bearing with billet compressor wheel. I also have a lot of friends that have done the Precision and Garretts that work good too.
Precision Turbo T3 T25 48mm Wheel Dual Ceramic Ball Bearing Rated 400HP 4828 | eBay
kPa Turbos 2863 Ceramic Ball Bearing turbocharger Billet Compressor Wheel GT28 | eBay

Any input would be great before I drop $ on my purchase.

Let me throw some links at you that may help in the process and selection. This one is for selecting a turbo:http://www.---------------/turbocalc/index.php

This is also for selecting a turbo: Not2Fast: Turbo Calculator

And this is for EFI math, well in fact it's called "EFI Math" and is an iPhone, iPod, iPad/Android App for EFI calculations and it's said that will incorporate turbo math as well.

Hope it helps a bit!
